Since last saturday I have a (kind of) working Octave+gnuplot under 
(Coming from the "dead" OS/2 I was shocked to see how hard it is to get
some unixish stuff working under the great Win** systems ;-(()

Simply compile the beta 340. I used Visual C and the makefile.nt from
gnuplot. I patched the sources und HPUX, maybe there is one spot where
you have to do some interaction.

Same thing here: ENJOY under HPUX and OS/2, FORCED to Winblech...

But rest assured: If you have got gnuplot compiled you need a small shell
script, which is not supplied by M. Khan (though a simple one ...).

And, by the way: Did anybody on the list manage Win-octave to work/plot from 
another drive than C: ? (Aehmm: Does anybody use octave under windows at all
or is it just supplied and never used aka tested ? ;-))
